The open access journal Forests has a call for papers related to the causes and consequences of bark beetle epidemics on tree, forest and ecosystem processes. Papers that identify environmental or ecological factors that contributed to the recent epidemic, describe mountain pine beetle impacts on ecosystem processes or identify management opportunities that may prevent or limit the extent of future outbreaks are encouraged. The call is open to a wide variety of subjects including experimental, monitoring and modeling approaches that further our understanding of the causes and consequences of large scale bark beetle epidemics. Full details can be found here.
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 June 2018
